Domaine de la Soumade

Often quoted as the superstar of Rasteau, André Roméro produces five Cuvées of excellent red wine from his 26 hectare estate. There is something comforting about these hearty reds - not always perfect - but they nonetheless have a lovely, warming chunkiness about them which is always very enjoyable. At Soumard they practice agriculture “raisonée” in all of the vineyards, only treating the vines where absolutely necessary, in order to maximise the terroir (clay-limestone) characteristics of the wines and practise sustainable viticulture. They use organic compost which is only applied when soil deficiencies are revealed, following analysis of the soil and vine vegetation. When climatic conditions dictate they use organically permitted treatments (sulphur and copper) to protect the vines from mildew and oidium. Although not certified organic, their approach to viticulture is respectful of the land and the future sustainability of production and the environment. The wines are fined with egg whites where necessary. Perfect for an evening in with a steak and a DVD.
